I used to remove the cottony pith of the bitter melon, but I learned how tasty it can be. A sure match with beer![Warning] The covering on the bitter melon seed may be toxic to children, so do not serve in large quantities.
My mother taught me this recipe.I've been making this since last year, and it goes well with beer.
Since the pith absorbs water, thoroughly pat dry the excess water. The stiff batter will give that extra tasty crunch.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
